Now, this is a most interesting thing which I don't believe that I have 
noticed before (I often check my own posts and have never noticed this 
behaviour, or, at the least, paid attention to).

Clicking on the URL you provided above doesn't take *me* to the 
BEGINNING of that Ubuntu doco. entry but to the point/spot at which it 
appears that you *copied*/saved the URL and which is some screen pages 
down from the beginning of the article you quote above in your post.

I wonder why this is so?

I can see that you are using Kmail for your mail but don't know what you 
are using as a browser. Is this where the answer lies :-) ? (I use FF as 
the browser.)
